Little Haiti Is Coming Soon To Flatbush in New York
Haitians gathered Friday on the corner of Newkirk and Nostrand Avenues to announce that Little Haiti Business and Cultural district is coming soon.
The proposed Little Haiti Business and Cultural District (a legislation currently awaiting to pass the City Council) will be defined as the area roughly between Avenue H and Parkside Avenue, East 16th Street and Brooklyn Avenue.
“Little Haiti is an idea whose time has come. Brooklyn is the Port-au-Prince of America, and it’s time for the world to know and come experience all we have to offer,” Borough President Eric Adams said.
“On this year’s Haitian Flag Day, we raise our voices to make Little Haiti an official designation in the heart of Flatbush.” he added.
After the anoncement, a new sign for Toussaint L’Ouverture Blvd, which overlaps portions of Nostrand Avenue, was unveiled. Parts of Rogers Avenue will be co-named.
